Kinyaa’áanii Library Campaign

The Kinyaa’áanii Library at Diné College is in need of repair. This fundraising campaign for renovations begins a year of giving to support Navajo higher Education.

Renew the Fireplace of Knowledge-Kinyaa’áanii Library Campaign

The fireplace is the center of a Navajo home – Sacred Fire, the illuminating witness to the growth and development of Navajo education. Navajo education completed a major milestone in 1968, establishing and leading the way for American Indian Education. The Kinyaa’annii Library is located in the center of the Diné College at the Tsaile Main Campus.

The First Tribal College Library, the Kinyaa’áanii Library, was opened in 1974 under the prayer of Navajo Medicine Practitioner Charlie Benally. The seeds of Navajo education were planted in remembrance of the unfailing efforts of our Navajo elders, securing the future for the realization of today’s Diné College


Our Goal – $1,500,000

Starting May 2019, in line with the start of the planting season, please help us to plant the seeds of the Renew the Fireplace of Knowledge Kinyaa’áanii Library Campaign.
